There are about 25 pre-13th century manuscripts of Metamorphoses and some 50 from the 13th century itself. This copy was produced in Northern Italy, probably at a university. There are marginal and inter-linear glosses that are contemporary with the text.

A storehouse of mythology -- in most of the tales a human is changed into a non-human form. 15 books in hexameter.
Metamorphoses was written just before Ovid was banished from Rome (A.D. 8). At the time it lacked his final revision.
